# A cyclist can pedal at a speed of 3m/s for 6 min. How many meters will the cyclist pedal in that time?

Jun 20, 2018

3 m/s would give $3 \times 60 = 180$ metres in a minute

In 6 mins you would travel $6 \times 180 = 1080$ metres in total

$1080 \setminus \text{m}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{Distance = Speed × Time}$

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{Distance") = 3 "m"/cancel"s" × 6 cancel"min" × (60 cancel"s")/(1 cancel"min}}$

color(white)("Distance") = 1080\ "m"
